Fitness: What You Can Do For a Healthier Life
The weather is changing and summer is on the way. Time to get out there and get into shape. What if, like most of us, you don’t have the time to visit a gym? There are some easy fitness tips you can do everyday to help yourself get where you want to be.
I’m sure most of us have heard that we should park at the end of the parking lot and walk, or to take the stairs instead of an elevator. These are great tips. They force us to exert ourselves where we might have otherwise taken the easy way. By putting ourselves in a position to choose the more physical route we are giving ourselves an edge over our health.
You don’t need a gym membership, a set of weights, or the latest Brazilian super workout DVD series to get into better shape. Just get out and walk. Of exercises known, walking is among the healthiest.
Remember the maxim, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away?” It’s pretty accurate. It turns out that apples are massively high in beneficial antioxidants which protect the cells of your body from premature destruction.
I have said this before, and I’ll say it again; drink plenty of water, limit your alcohol and forget the soda pop and packaged juices.
Six to eight glasses of water per day will hydrate you, improve your skin, enhance digestion, aid elimination, and help your body to rid itself of accumulated toxins. So when you’re thirsty, drink water.
Fitness is not something that you accomplish in a short period of time. Instead, fitness is a lifestyle. When you are physically fit, you have more strength, energy, endurance and overall vitality. Being fit enhances mood and reduces mental fog.
